Winter Storm Update

Freezing rain has brought most areas an icy Monday morning. Steady, and at times moderate freezing rain across southern michigan and extreme northern Ohio resulted in 1/4" to 1/2" of ice accumulations from midday Sunday into this morning.

It is still expected that a light wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain will linger through the rest of the morning. Snow with a chance of a mix south of Toledo will redevelop this afternoon and into the evening tonight. All precipitation should turn entirely back to snow after dark tonight. Bursts of moderate and even heavy snow possible tonight which may result in 3-5 inches of snow by very early tomorrow morning. Outside of a few flurries Tuesday morning, the day will gradually turn partly sunny.

Here's a map of expected snow accumulations this afternoon through tonight:
